Clear-Com Merges with HME Pro Audio
Clear-Com has announced a merger with HME Pro Audio Division, a direct result of HME’s recent acquisition of Clear-Com. Effective Jan. 1, 2011, HME’s existing Pro Audio Division, which includes the professional wireless intercom products, sales and technical staff, distribution network, and marketing activities, becomes part of Clear-Com.
The merger of HME’s existing channel partners into Clear-Com’s global distribution network makes it the largest distributor of professional intercom, as well as the provider with most extensive wired and wireless intercoms on the market. The HME wireless products joining the Clear-Com fold include the flagship 2.4GHz DX-Series digital systems and UHF PRO850 system.
HME’s Pro Audio staff in Sales, Product Management, and Support are now part of the Clear-Com team. These transfers include John Kowalski as Director of U.S. Broadcast & Network Sales, Jennifer Cassidy as Sales Manager-Military Aerospace, Government and Rick Molina as Applications Engineer. Mike Hughes has also joined Clear-Com as the VP of New Business Development, seeking new business opportunities while continuing his efforts with HME house accounts, OEM, and football sales.
“With the integration of the HME Pro Audio Division into our organization, Clear-Com is now a much stronger company with more resources and capabilities to offer best-in-class professional audio intercom solutions and exceptional customer service and support,” says Matt Danilowicz, President and Managing Director of Clear-Com. “Our parent company, HME, is known for its wireless expertise, customer service and manufacturing excellence; while Clear-Com is legendary for its breadth of party-line, matrix and IP solutions as well as customer focus. As customers continue to demand high quality, reliable intercom products and excellent technical support, we believe combining our strengths will greatly enhance our ability to better serve our customers and the marketplace.”
